The prospective validity of neurocognitive functions and emotional factors in schoolchildren with ADHD and a control group of typically developing schoolchildren at baseline and after three years will be investigated. Specific aims: Aim I: Study how attentiveness and impulsivity in ADHD change over three years by comparing the results of psychological tests and rating scales at baseline and after three years Aim II: Study intellectual development in ADHD by comparing the results of intelligence tests at baseline and after three years- Aim III: Study how emotional factors change over three years by comparing the results of rating scales at baseline and after three years. ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT04201509. Approved by Region Skåne Ethical Review Board (Dnr: 2012/88).
